    There's lots of threads and reviews on Wah pedals in the forums. I use an Ibanez WD-7 myself, and I absolutely love the thing. What you need depends on what type of sound you're trying to achieve, tho. Do a search.

    There are a billion topics covering this, but that's never stopped us before. The Crybaby Bass Wah, specifically the 105Q, is generally acceptable around these parts, as are the EBS Wah One, whatever Wilson wah people like, and the Ibanez WD-7 Weeping Demon Wah. I have the CryBaby, and I'm probably going to get rid of it. I used it in high school, so I have quite a bit of experience, but lately, I haven't been really enjoying the acquisition of effects as I used to. I have to really love the sound - the feel of the thing - before I'll dole out hundreds of ill-gotten dollars on a stompbox.

    Wilson Bass Q Wah (12-position, vintage specs) has me GAS-free for a wah.

    i echo the Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah (it is optical- which is a huge plus in my book no mechanical parts to break) and has both spring and normal footboard action, selectable wah range, and fine tuning controls. Some users have complained about it not playing nice with 18v active electronics...I use both active and passive basses with it and never had a single problem with it. I have to say say is the most versatile wah I have ever used and wouldn't go back to any other brand.

    plus new it can be had for less than $100.00 bucks

    meh i tried it and didn't like it....i found that most of the tone sweep was in the last 15% to 20% of the pedal travel

    honestly i tried every brand wah my store had it stock and chose the Weeping Demon for a ton of reasons.....

    Agree on all accounts. Also, I use a 9v active bass (active EMGs, active preamp), and I haven't had a single problem with it.
